I was recently diagnosed with sarcoidosis in June. I had mononucleosis in July 2004 and the right upper quadrant pain from that never went away. I had a ct scan that showed enlarged lymph nodes near my liver. My doctor thought that I had both lymphoma and gallbladder disease. I had surgery to remove my gallbladder and to perform a lymph node biopsy. Two weeks later my doctor told me the biopsy showed sarcoid. I had never heard of it. My doctor didn't explain much about what it was so I got alot of information off the internet. I was referred to see a rheumatologist but never went. My doctor told me that few people are seriously ill from the disease and it would probably go away with time. Now I don't have a gallbladder but I am still having right upper quadrant pain. I also noticed that I am extremely fatigued most of the time and I have night sweats, but there are no other symptoms. I was wondering if I should seek medical attention or wait and see what happens. I would appreciate any advice that anyone would have for me. Thanks!!!!!
